Researchers at Drexel University are 3d scanning dinosaur bones for replica 3d printing. They plan on building full scale robotic dinosaurs from the scans to study their joints and movements. *Dare I be proud of my Alma Mater? DARE I?!
Researchers at Drexel University are now studying the use of three-dimensional printing to create models of dinosaur skeletons from fossils. From these models, they hope to produce small robotic scale models of the colossal creatures.
Drexel University is starting to create 3D scans of fossils to better study the motion of giant dinosaurs through small-scale robotic models. Read this article by Martin LaMonica on CNET News. via @CNET
Paleontologists are creating robot replicas of dinosaurs to learn more about how these massive creatures moved on Earth. Scientists copy dinosaur bones with a 3D scanner (shown here), then reproduce the whole skeleton with a 3D printer to create scaled-down models. (Photo Credit: Drexel University)
A computerized laser scans the dinosaur bone and a program uses that information to create a smaller 3-D version
Next-Gen Paleontology & 3D Printing Robotic Dinosaurs "It's kind of like Star Trek technology, where you can press a button and the object pops out." …testing possible movements of extinct species is the major focus… "We don't know a lot about the way dinosaurs move," Lacovara said. "How did they stand? How did they ambulate? Did they run or trot? How did they reproduce? It's all a bit mysterious, especially when it comes to the largest dinosaurs."

Dinosaurs. I worked in the Exhibits Department of the Academy of Natural Science Philadelphia. That was a childhood dream come true.
Dinosaur Hall @ The Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University ... is America's oldest natural history museum and is a world leader in biodiversity and environmental research.
The Academy of Natural Sciences-Dinosaur Hall-we really don't need any excuse to go back here. love dinosaurs:).
Big and little kids will love exploring the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University. Drexel Faculty and Staff get free individual general admission to the Academy. Sites like Groupon also offer deals from time to time on museum memberships.
Borrow a museum pass from the library and check out the dinosaurs at the Academy of Natural Sciences!
